Class

Through out all of the films we have watched there were some levels of classism in each film, from gangs who thrive off money and wealth, to kids being brought up in a poverty stricken neighborhood. classism is deffinately a political protest worthy issue to depict in either text or film.  classicism and casting is nothing new unfortunately.  It just sucks that the tribe in which you are born in or whether your family is wealthy or not defines your future.  I came across this video on facebook about casting and it was sad, it mimics aspects of my culture with tribes. social stratification and classism is an ongoing issue that is worth being critiqued more in film.
